Hello,
Is Shopify Payment being considered to expand in Bulgaria in 2023 or 2024? It's a shame that in 2023 we still can't sell to international customers.

Hi there, @Mexess.

We are always looking to expand and improve our offerings, but currently I cannot give a timeline for when or even if Shopify Payments will be available for our merchants in Bulgaria. I will be happy to submit this as a future platform update request on your behalf.

Just so you know - here is a list of all the supported gateways we have for Bulgaria currently. Thank you!

Yep same issue, we can't have different pricing in Euro and USD without some very convoluted way.

The problem is that without Shopify payments we can't have Google Pay nor we can display local currencies at checkout. Which is resulting in less sales and more abandoned checkouts for our international customers.

Hi, Ivy, any update on introducing Shopify Payments in Bulgaria? It is a shame that an EU member country doesn't have this option. Romania is now featured but Bulgaria, when?

All of us here in Bulgaria are struggling with the high fees of the 3rd party payment providers. Most of them are not even a good fit! It’s a shame we don’t have Shopify payments. I know it’s way more complicated than just adding Bulgaria to the list with 1 click but everyone is going to benefit from this! Shopify will keep all the fees and merchants will be happy too! We can’t wait to have Shopify payments! Fingers crossed soon 🤞

Hi, Ivy! It's in a high demand to have Shopify payments in Bulgaria. There are millions of merchants here in Bulgaria who would benefit from it. And it is a shame that as an EU country we cannot use it. I hope we can soon, fingers crossed.

Wish you a wonderful day!

Hi everyone! I wanted to assure you that your feedback here is still being heard and provided to our developers for continued consideration. I do not have an updates at this time on when/if Shopify Payments will expand to Bulgaria. A positive note though, is that we do support Stripe in Bulgaria and Stripe is one of the gateways that powers Shopify Payments! I definitely recommend checking out Stripe as a gateway solution at this time. 

 

You can also see all supported payment gateways based on country on our Payment Gateway's page.

Dear Shay,

Thank you for the recommendation, we're already using Stripe. However the major problem is the currencies at Checkout. For example, I am loosing about 20% of sales in other markets just because at checkout I can't display the prices at the customers' local currency. It is definitely not fair to restrict this feature to Shopify payments only, once the service is not covering all regions. After all, we do pay the same monthly fees as the Germans, or the Brits, but we don't have access to the same features. I would propose that for merchants who are in regions out of Shopify payments, you should consider providing another option for us to display the prices at checkout in local currency of the customer.

I came to look for a solution, I go knowing they don't have a solution ...

 

There is so many serious entrepreneurs that struggle with Stripe ans others in Bulgaria, even the big ones. It's a city full of foreigns entreprenors that had it in their home country but that lost it when they arrived here. We need it again.
